Liverpool To Go Full Strength Versus City Again?

Liverpool To Go Full Strength Versus City Again?

January's mouthwatering League Cup Semi-Final clash between Premier League leaders Manchester City and Liverpool already has the fans debating team line ups...

It's a long shot but Liverpool will be hoping that midfield general Martin Atkinson get's the nod for at least one of the two legs in their bid to satisfy the media hordes who reckon they are a brilliant football team again.

The tourettes card flourisher and Anfield favourite could help towards realising the dream of securing silverware for the first time in what would be six years. He'll be hoping to lead the attack alongside shrieking turf plummeter Luis Suarez in the probable absence of record signing Andy Carthorse who will adopt a deep lying bench role.

Panicky charge out goalkeeper Pepe Reina who showed excellent handling skills at the launch of his inexplicable autobiography is sure to start alongside a host of top names, such is the importance the club's American based hierarchy have placed upon any cup.

Kenny Dalglish's 'Big Game Side' (copyright Lawrenson-Hanson Pontificators Limited) will be contemplating how Manchester City's cunning gaffer Roberto Mancini will approach the tie.

Will Mancio adopt Sir Alex Ferguson's erstwhile League Cup Semi-Final strategy of desperately ditching second stringers or put his faith in a team described by straw clutching, calculator obsessed commentators as expensive flops or lucky superstars depending upon which net the ball settles in.


- ITV have already announced that they will have two camera's focused on the City bench at all times in search of the slightest raised eyebrow.

- The ties will take place in the week commencing 9 January and 23 January.

Atkinson is the only Liverpool player that has me worried if I'm honest.
